“GORGEOUS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

This is a must for visitors to the area - the locals are not crazy about the wildlife, but seriously - why not? This is real life, not Sea World! It is a gorgeous spot and you will have plenty of luck finding seals, birds and other animals as well as plenty of people watching if you like.

“One of the nicest views in the whole country.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

I have been touring around the whole country on a roadtrip recently, and can say that La Jolla has one of the most scenic shorlines/coves in the whole country. Breathtaking views! Awesome place to walk around or have a picnic.

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Very scenic and worth seeing. Places to walk and jog and you can eat a picnic lunch in Scripps park. Many Seals swimming about, but beware the smell!

“Beautiful Cove”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

While I was swimming I was joined by a seal. Beautiful cove and unforgettable experience! The area is a small area not a huge beach but worth going to for its beauty.
